Obituary for Richard Lindner

Richard (Rich) Lindner, of Oxford Twp., passed peacefully into the next world Monday, October 6th, 2014 after a protracted battle with congestive heart failure. He was 77. Rich was born in Detroit in 1937 and grew up in what was, at the time, Redford. He attended Redford High and graduated in 1955. He married his wife Bonnie (nee McNinch) in 1957; this past September they celebrated their 57th wedding anniversary.

Rich worked at General Motors as a draftsman, technical illustrator and at various mid-level management positions from 1963 until retiring after 30 years in 1993. After this time, he was a small business owner and eventually took a role at Christ the King Church in Oxford as an elder and then eventually a visitation pastor, a role he relished. Besides his service to the church, Rich also enjoyed traveling with his wife (Traverse City was a favorite destination, and he was always willing to tell about their year touring the national parks in a travel trailer), attending and watching his Detroit Tigers, gardening, and his dogs.

Rich is survived by his wife, Bonnie; his three children Patricia Anne (55, of Fort Worth Texas), Kathy (53, of Quartz Hill California) and Michael (44, of Lafayette, Indiana), as well as eight grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.

Arrangements for cremation entrusted to Lynch & Sons Funeral Directors, Oxford. A memorial service at Christ the King Church, 1550 Drahner Rd, Oxford, will take place Sunday, October 12 at 3 PM. Pastor Bob Holt will be officiating. A luncheon will immediately follow the service.

In lieu of flowers, Rich asked that donations be made in his name to “Hope For Tomorrow” missionary fund.
